[laughter] now it seems antiquated. it was the '90s which doesn't feel, i don't feel that old, but -- [laughter] these were common arguments. and sometimes what was guidance got sort of twisted into policies or practices that really sort of undermined the integration of women. for example, in the army there was guidance that, you know, for healthful purposes women should shower every 72 hours. but then i was in a number of units where somehow that was taken as policy x they said women can't be in combat because women must have showers every 72 hours.

. the energy relationship between the united states and canada is vital to the future of both our countries. it's an interest we share transcending political lines and geographic boundaries." the letter goes on and talks about how the project is crucial to u.s. energy security. working with canada for our energy rather than getting it from the middle east. the letter talks about thousands of jobs at the -- that the project creates, not only building this $7 billion pipeline but that all the jobs that go to the refineries and the other activities that go with it and talks about safety, efficiency and reliability. now, the letter concludes mr. president, we consider the keystone x.l. pipeline fundamentally important to the future economic prosperity of both the united states and canada. we strongly urge you to issue a presidential permit and act swiftly to approve the keystone x.l. pipeline, signed by governors -- now, remember, senator baucus and i have been working on the effort on behalf of montana. you have got nebraska here. governor heineman just sent a letter in. now here are some of the o
it and that is a critical, of critical importance. and one example of that is all of the energy that went into getting the larger institutions out of t.a.r.p. while forgetting about almost the hundreds of smaller banks that were in t.a.r.p., and there are still nearly 300 million small institutions, and so as well as the struggling homeowners who need assistance, and so we have been trying to remind people don't give up on the people better still feeling the effect of the financial crisis. and that is what is critically important. >> host: battleground in washington, hello. >> caller: good morning. i've been following this fairly closely for the last five years. i have noticed brian lamb has had some interesting interviews and i have seen sheila bair from the fdic and i think on bill moyers at one point, but i think that the biggest point everybody seems to be missing is it's not whether or not people are receiving bonuses for who is paid back how much of t.a.r.p., who cares so much the feedback but the big point everyone seems to be missing is the glaring contradiction for the 70's, 80's and 90's as
implemented carbon pricing. many invest far more than we do in renewable energy. the united states is falling behind rather than leading. even china, today's biggest polluter, recently committed to reduce the amount of carbon it emits relative to its economic output. and in 2009, china surpassed the united states of america in renewable energy investment. looking at all of that, it is hard to imagine that those who will suffer, those who will be displaced, those who will lose their ancient livelihoods all around the world will look benevillbenevolently upon our n. it is hard to believe that they will not resent that they are forced to bear those burdens as the price of our carbon economy. one can readily imagine extremists who wish to rally disenchanted people against us, even to violence against us, finding fertile opportunity where that resentment festers. will it not be? as daniel webster said, an argument against our experiment? will it not be an argument against our experiment that our democracy, our great american democracy, seized in the grip of polluting special interests or fringe po

spend a lot of money and a lot of time in a lot of energy to mail out and send out the disclosure information to the participants who in the first place the minimal engagement in the plan they are not meant to be interested in the expense ratio of every fund that is offered under the plan so that is the kind of regulation that is well intended but in the end really didn't have the impact that it's designed to have. so, trying to manage the necessary regulation with the regulation that isn't going to be a big impact just echoing what they said is important. >> is it going to get us there by making it plain and simple? >> senator warren's line of questioning because i think it is a very helpful. i remember to be the governor of tennessee i walked across the state many years ago and when i was out there with nobody to talk to they were along the road. i was thinking that if i got elected what if i could make a tax reform or some sort of left for somebody to start a business and then for the state's point of view this is everything we care about. this is all the taxes on all the regul

to prosperity to year. kutz to things like education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs and the recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy or for folks who are out there still looking for work. the disagree as what we have had over the past few years, democrats and republicans have still been unable to come together and cut the deficits by more than $2.5 trillion through the mix of spending cuts and higher rates on taxes for the wealthy. a balanced approach can achieve more than $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction. that is more than halfway to words the $4 trillion in the deficit reduction that economists and the elected officials in both parties believe is required to stabilize their debt so we have made progress and i sometimes believe that we can finish the job with a balanced mix of spending cuts and more tax reform. the proposal during the fiscal cliff negotiations and discussions with the speaker and others are still very much on the table. the deal's life but forward in entitlement reform and tax reform that i've put forward are still on the tabl
